There is still a lot to reveal about Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla. Little by little and thank you interview more knowing details of the game. This time Ashraf Ismail has spoken about the progression system and the skills of Eivor, the protagonist of the game.
One of the most criticized things about Odyssey was the level system that practically forces you to do side missions to gain experience and upgrade the character. The players complained, arguing that they wanted to enjoy the game without having to make secondary tests. Now in Valhalla, we will not have to invest time in leveling up because the progression system will be more balanced.
There are enough secondary tasks like looting camps. They complement the story but it will not be necessary to make them for your character to fulfill the main mission with guarantees.
